Oswalt Catches A Comebacker On The Neck, Leaves Early

A Manny Ramirez liner caught Roy Oswalt on the back of the neck with no outs in the fourth inning. Oswalt laid motionless on the mound for a few moments as the medical staff rushed out to him. He walked away from the injury, but will likely undergo some precautionary tests.

Meanwhile, James Shields finished 7 strong innings, collecting 4 strikeouts while allowing 4 hits and 1 walk. By the bottom of the 7th, manager Joe Maddon has pulled most of the Rays starters.
